Merge proposal[edit]

I propose to merge this article with the one on the Kermadec Trench, and also with the one on the Kermadec-Tonga Subduction Zone, as they are all part of the same tectonic feature. Tmangray (talk) 16:58, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Apollo 13 RTG[edit]

I think we need a bit more on this, if anyone has access to sources. Is it known where exactly in the trench the RTG lies? Was retrieval ever intended and would such a thing be possible? Have there been studies to measure radioactivity in the area to see if the thing is leaking? Any well-sourced information would be appreciated in the article.

Is the Apollo 13 mission relevant enough to be mentioned in the introductory part? Imo it is just a minor curiousity, possibly deserving a small note in the end of the article (but not more). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:15, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

Horizon Deep[edit]

This should have an article, being one of the deepest Deeps in the world. (talk) 13:42, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Pop Culture References[edit]

In the movie Batman vs Superman, the submersible recording had the name of the trench in the caption when Aquaman is seen. Should that be included in this article as a pop culture reference? I ask because several other Wikipedia articles make a point of mentioning them (which is how I ended up here). Thanks. Mrobviousjosh (talk) 10:53, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

No - simply trivial. Vsmith (talk) 11:12, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Correction to manned dive in 2019Gwyncann (talk) 04:03, 11 October 2019 (UTC)[edit]

Article presently states: "On 5 June 2019 Victor Vescovo made the first manned descent to the bottom of the Sirena Deep in the Deep-Submergence Vehicle DSV Limiting Factor (a Triton 36000/2 model submersible) and measured a depth of 10,823 m (35,509 ft) ±10 m (33 ft).[6]"

  The words "Sirena Deep" are incorrect and should be changed to "Horizon Deep."   Someone made a slip.  The depths are recorded in [6] as the Horizon Deep depths.
